The entire pilot of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted at Comic-Con, a full two months ahead of the show’s September 24 premiere. Sorry, everyone not in San Diego.

And don’t expect any shaky cell phone footage to hit the Internet anytime soon: A crew of “S.H.I.E.L.D. agents” patrolled the Ballroom 20 floor to make sure rogue fans weren’t recording the top-secret show during Friday’s panel. (Yet another example of art imitating life imitating art.)

So what did the lucky few Whedonites have to say about the pilot? As you can imagine, the Twitter response was across-the-board positive — with one exception.

And there has to be one (sorta) naysayer — we would expect nothing less from someone with the word “cynic” in her Twitter handle:

Bonus: The show tweeted a pic of the cast and crew in the green room!

Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) assembles a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.
